Legislation granting equal rights to ethnic Hungarians in other countries, as well as issuing “Hungarian IDs” to ethnic kin were “the first step to establish a legal bond” between communities in neighbouring countries and the Hungarian state, Deputy Prime Minister Zsolt Semjén told a conference marking the 20th anniversary of those developments, in Subotica (Szabadka) on Friday.
The law facilitated that the state of Hungary could provide various forms of assistance to ethnic communities abroad, Semjén said.
On another subject, Semjén said that voters in the April 3 election could choose between the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance “representing Christian, national and civic values” and a “prime minister-candidate Péter Márki-Zay’s conglomerate which admitted to be ranging from communists to fascists”.
He added that Hungary’s Left was in fact controlled by former PM Ferenc Gyurcsány.
